CONECA (pronounced: CŌ´NECA) is a national numismatic organization devoted to the education of error and variety coin collectors. CONECA focuses on many error and variety specialties, including doubled dies, Repunched mintmarks, multiple errors, clips, double strikes, off-metals and off-centers—just to name a few. In addition to its website, CONECA publishes an educational journal, The Errorscope, which is printed and mailed to members bimonthly. CONECA offers a lending library, examination, listing and attribution services; it holds annual meetings at major conventions (referred to as Errorama) around the country.

CONECA was formed through a merger of CONE and NECA in early 1983. To learn more about the fascinating HISTORY OF THE ERROR HOBBY and THE HISTORY OF CONECA, we encourage you to visit us our main site Here

  • 1959 D Lamination error

    Believe I found a lamination error in a coin roll tonight. Check out this 1959 D penny. Front is in great condition the back is all kinds of wack. What are your thoughts.

    My first thought is that this coin suffers from environmental damage, This side of the coin sat on the ground or in some corrosive liquid. The green color shows the patina of copper after it begins to corrode.

      THis is raised and covers most of the reverse of the coin. The obverse is unscathed. This coin isn't dug out at all.

        I didn't say it was dug, only that it may have sat on the ground. I also stated that it may have sat in a corrosive liquid. I can tell you that this is not a lamination error (at least none that I have ever seen in over 53 years of searching)
        A lamination peel is a (usually the first) layer of metal and will have the design elements struck into it. If this is raised, it can not be a lamination peel. Does this not look like just plain damage to you? What am I missing that makes you believe it is a lamination peel?

            It is also copper on top. Like it maybe got material off another coin. The image underneath is still intact. The coin is not damaged, it simply has extra on top. I didn't say lamination peel, I stated lamination error, as maybe it peeled it off another coin.

              Corrosion would not raise the material on the coin it would in essence be dug out. We are just using different terms to express the point.

                Here is an example of what I am thinking pulled off Google. My coin has the extra part peeled off another. This image has 2 coins one with a peel and the other that took the material.

                  I'm in the glue, lacquer or epoxy column. It may have been glued into an album at some point. Give it an acetone bath. Just my opinion.

                    You have the coin in hand. We do not. That is a distinct disadvantage for us. I can only give an opinion based on what I am seeing with your photos. You seem to have your heart set on this being a lamination. I just disagree, that's all. I have not heard of a coin picking up the layer of another coin and having it stick to it. I think it is damage of some sort. We can wait for other opinions, but I will stick with mine for now.
